At last, after five years we have some flowers. this is only a small tree (about 1 mtr. or 40 inches).

The perfume is wonderful, typical Frangipani/Plumeria scent with an over tone of apricot. I think this was named Fruit Salad. Whatever the name, just gorgeous and suits the tropical weather we are having at the moment.
We have already had a flush of roses this summer, but the Standard Seduction Rose is quick to produce the next flush. I hope we don't have a problem with black spot, but this seems to go hand-in-hand with humid weather. This summer has been unusually wet, I think we may have another storm tonight.
 The Seduction rose has such a sweet scent, just lovely, don't you think?

I did it again!
Another new start.
Enjoyable, yes.
Should I be doing this now, no.
I found some variegated thread and thought I would dabble in some more Wessex work.
Each little diamond is 20 stitches. No I haven't counted the total when finished, probably a gazillion(embroiderer's measurement).
I am not sure if this will be another scissor keeper or a case for my sunglasses.

I have to get back to Rosewood Manor and stop wishing that the day was longer or give up sleep, or stop reading, patting little dogs or eating or shopping.
Heaven knows the house has not seen a duster for a while.
A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!
